While in Paris and London I kept seeing people with really great hair colors. Not your normal colors that naturally grow out of people's heads either, but bright fun colors that made me think of having no worries and actually enjoying life. Of course I had to have fun hair too.
When we got home I made a hair appointment to have my hair highlighted in purple. Why purple? I haven't a clue. I think I picked it because I thought it would be nice and dark and still look good against my red hair. I also wasn't thinking lavender or anything light but rather a dark violet, almost black, color.
Before you jump ahead and think I now have purple hair, stop. It's not purple. My stylist wasn't sure what shade of purple I was thinking and therefore she didn't go buy any dyes. She offered to go over the weekend and get some and we could reschedule for during the week, but being the instant gratification person I am, I told her I was open to other color options and let's work with what she had in the salon.
Her solution was not highlights but rather a total dye job changing every little bit of hair that I have. We started by making my hair brown. A really deep chocolate brown that acts as a nice platform for the other three colors I have striped through it. She then layered an orangey red, a deep red-ish violet, and a bright red through it.
If I do say so myself, it looks AWESOME. Like, I rock and have super cool hair, awesome.
